Better Teen Today for a Brighter Tomorrow

NHCAC Partnership with CHPRD

Center for ReseachThe North Hudson Community Action Corporation has been awarded $30,000 by the Center of Hispanic Policy Research and Development (CHPRD) to spearhead a teen mentoring program. NHCAC health center has created the 4 T’s Club (Teens Transitioning Today for Tomorrow). The goals of this initiative are to facilitate teens’ exposure to health careers and professional meetings while enhancing each participating student’s capacity to make health like choices. NHCAC will provide effective adolescent and transition services for teens by partnering with teens and young adults to create a plan to help them transition or graduate from the pediatric to the adult system. These teens will be working with a Partnership Program Coordinator who will monitor, track and report on each teens progress and the number of families identifying NHCAC a their “medical home.”
